It's another new day and a good time for fresh beginnings. After all, it's also now Spring and a great season for cleansing and renewal. Don't beat yourself up if you haven't been too diligent with your money; here are some ways you can clean up your money mistakes:
- File your taxes. Taxes are due in two weeks, so if you haven't yet already filed, it's time to get going. Start out this month on a good foot by not delaying important money tasks and risk facing potential penalties. If you're mailing your paper return, make sure you get it out in time for an April 15 postmark.
- Look at how you're managing your money. Take some time to assess how you're managing your money. Sign up for a Mint account if you haven't already, and if you have one, try to figure out how to use it better.
- Organize your documents. Now that tax season is almost over, make it easier on yourself for next year's taxes by getting more organized. Trash the ones you can do without and organize the ones you do have to keep in a proper folder.
April showers may be in the forecast, but a little rain isn't stopping us.
